Nespresso has pledged that every cup of Nespresso coffee, both for at-home and for professional customers, would be carbon neutral by the end of 2022.
This new ambition builds on more than 10 years of work during which Nespresso has reduced its carbon emissions and compensated the remainder through agroforestry.
“There’s no doubt that we are in a climate crisis. And our future depends on all of us doing our bit. Sustainability at Nespresso is far more than a desire to act responsibly, it sits at the core of our business. That is why we are accelerating our sustainability commitments to offer our consumers a way to drink a carbon neutral cup of coffee by 2022. A coffee, made from the finest and rarest beans, sustainably sourced. I truly believe that both our business and the coffee industry can be a force for good in the world and I hope that our commitment will encourage others to follow,” says Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso.
Nespresso will achieve carbon neutrality through reduction of carbon emissions, planting trees in and around coffee farms where it sources its coffee (insetting) and support and invest in high quality offsetting projects.
